Accountability is central to how we deliver quality programming.
We are committed to being accountable to children, young people, and their communities. We realise this overarching commitment by aligning and adhering to global standards on, and that which relate to, accountability.
As a humanitarian actor, we uphold the four pillars of principled humanitarian action: humanity, impartiality, neutrality, and independence.
We seek to systematically deliver quality programmes that adhere to sectoral Minimum Standards such as those developed by The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action.
Core Humanitarian Standard
We are a member of the Core Humanitarian Standard Alliance and seek to adhere to the nine commitments on quality and accountability, putting communities and people affected by crisis at the centre of our programmes.
Our accountability to affected populations framework
In our programmes, we are guided by four key building blocks that form the foundation of our approach to accountability. These essential components are:
- Participation and inclusion
- Information and communication
- Feedback and response
- Learning and adaptation
